Payment form on paper. Would you do it?

If you care about payment systems because you work on one too, use one everyday or even if you purchase online you understand that your bank card information (either debit or credit) should be kept private.

When you hit that “Application Form” link, you’ll go back in time like Marty but without the Doc or the DeLorean.

Talks about PCI compliance would get us bored so I’ll just show you a screenshot of what I just found online.

IELTS’s application form with payment information

Yes, that’s right! They expect you to put your card details on a piece of paper!

An English IELTS test can be found at ielts.org and, after successfully locating a suitable one near you, you should apply for it, right? When you hit that “Application Form” link, you’ll go back in time like Marty but without the Doc or the DeLorean.

Would you fill in a payment form like this one?

If you happen to know someone at IELTS, warn them of the implications of this. Thanks.

Disclaimer: I have nothing against IELTS.org nor this post is meant to harm them. The original application form can be found here.
